    woaah ! When did phillips models start playing divx movies ! We need more info on this.

    Kiss players play divx, some phillips models not available in India do that unofficially, and there are a lot of smaller lesser known brands (not available in India) which play xvid, divx even 3ivx. But sadly none are available in India.

    Sorry guys my bad Te DVP-642 is now officially available in India. Get ur cash and go shopping ! It plays divx movies and there's unofficial support for xvid too. Maybe further firmware upgrades might bring support for newer releases of the codecs !!

    Oh and btw it cost a sweet 6k i think..........once again sorry for providing some wrong info !

    Well thats the price u pay for living in India. Oh and amazon will probably charge u for s/h and u'll have to pay taxes and stuff. Plus what abt the warranty ? is the one on amazon with a international warranty ? So its better to shell out 6k here with warranty and stuff, and its probably the cheapest Divx certified player here in India.

    6k is still quite a good deal for a divx player ...
    considering ofcourse the have progressive scan and optical out too ..
    this ofcourse compared to the products we have in the market right now .. and their cost

    What use is progressive scan when 99.99999% of TV's dont support it? And who can use digital? Even a half decent AC3 receivers costs over $1000. My friend got an onkyo one and the setup cost around $3000, Of course he also has a big screen 45inch TV and it does rock.. You do feel the walls move in movies like the matrix.... Think he tries to use that stuff in crowded India and they might lynch him. Or scare the neighborhood kids.. I got the Phillips 21inch flat screen TV just so it could use SVHS inputs.. It was the best for those on a budget.. My player does have separate component outputs but there again you come to, 99% of TV's dont have the inputs.. maybe except Toshiba TV's. So almost everything is a waste. Heck I mean, I asked the video guy why there were ads in the movies because it blocked the picture which is not clear anyway and he looked at me like I was crazy... Guess I was the first person to complain about picture and sound quality not being up to par..

    well for one ... gettin the max formats and features u just make ur player future proof
    cuz these technologies are gonna come to affordable units ...
    even apart from all this .. i said its a good deal ... for the price u are paying for the features. ..
    ofcourse if u wanna save/not wanna go in for these features ... ull get a dvd player for as low as 3k ....
    even less maybe!!!!
    better yet go in for a dvd rom drive for 1.6k ..
    there are a lot of alternatives and they all depend on the buyer ...
    its like .. "one mans food is another mans poison" or vice versa or something like that :D

    Does any one know who stocks this Phillips DIVX player in Mumbai ? I phoned some of the Electronics dealers I know of and none of them had any idea about this model. The prize for the best reply was for Vijay Sales - they said that this was an old model now discontinued and now not available.

    I guess so.. I went to an open house at this hotel and they were previewing 40-50 inch LCD screens and the guy said they were all sold out.. At 4-600K I guess every one has money to burn these days..

    GEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My car dont cost that much..

    PS.. Did I mention it had progressive scan inputs? 8)

    I bought my DV cam because it had progressive scan.. Now only if the picture quality was better on it. You need progressive scan on a camera if you want stills.

    I have checked samsung website but their is no Divx-certified DVD players.Tell the exact URL.
    Ya i think progressive scan output doesn't mean for people who have CRT TV ,infact in Plasma Tvs they have progressive scan but their cost is too much..so its useless in dvd player for us.

    did anyone knows what is DVD Component input means in sony wega TVs???.
